Are you sick and tired of the daily commute to your workplace? Well, perhaps it is high time you considered working home.

If it is something you are on the fence about, here are some benefits of working from garden rooms by urbanpods.

Gain Time By Ditching The Daily Commute

If you drive for an hour to work, then you will gain 2 hours every day by switching to a 30-second stroll to your garden office. That is a 10 hour gain every week. Making the switch permanently will equate to over 500 hours of increased productivity each year. This is the same as 49 full (8 hour) days, just let that sink in! This is a golden opportunity to save some time and ensure you maximize each and every day and enhance efficiency.

 No Dress Code

Do you prefer working in your pajamas? Well, no problem

More Time For Your Loved Ones

With a garden office, you will be able to work when your family members are occupied and get to spend quality time with them when they are not. This is something you don't usually get when you work at an office in the city.

Increased Productivity Due to Healthy Environment

Research has it that the environment is vital for our productivity. Usually referred to as Sick Building Syndrome is a condition that affects office workers and it's usually marked by respiratory issues and headaches all attributed to stressful or unhealthy factors at the workplace. When you work in a home office in the garden and not on a timber-framed building, you will quickly notice that you become more productive. An office in the garden is an eco-friendly structure, which is one of the best ways of increasing productivity.

Focus on Quality

Reducing distractions and putting emphasis on a dedicated workspace is one of the best ways to give yourself a chance to think clearly and focus on quality. This is a well-known strategy by artists and authors who take off to a quiet place in order to focus on creativity. Well, the same is true in a myriad of other professionals and if you work calls for ultimate concentration, then you can really benefit from a garden office at home. You don't have to deal with coworkers who keep interfering with your work and will get the peace and quiet you deserve.

Another great benefit of working remotely is that you'll save on commuting costs, which can really add up over time.
